With the support of Warner Bros., DC Entertainment is launching its own streaming service beginning in 2018. The service will be the exclusive home to two shows that we’ve been waiting for, namely the third season of Young Justice, currently called Young Justice: Outsiders, and the live-action Teen Titans series, called Titans, that was in the works at TNT before it was unexpectedly dropped from production.
Titans is being written by Akiva Goldsman (Star Trek Discovery), DC Entertainment president Geoff Johns, and Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl). Sarah Schechter will join these three who are also serving as executive producers. The live-action drama will center around Dick Grayson, who “emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes.” We don’t know at this time if Dick Grayson will be appearing as Robin or as Nightwing, but time will tell as more details become available.
As for Young Justice: Outsiders, season three has the team of sidekicks battling “meta-human trafficking and the terrifying threat it creates for a society caught in the crossfire of a genetic arms race spanning the globe and the galaxy.”
What are your thoughts on DC launching their own streaming service? Do you think it will be successful? What about these shows? Are you excited for them?
Personally, I would rather see the shows on an existing service, i.e. Netflix, but with more and more companies launching their own platforms to try and compete with services like Hulu and Netflix, I’m honestly not surprised. However, I am very excited for both of these shows and can’t wait to watch them.
